Guess what i bought :)

oh my heck. so for some LONG months i have been browsing around the blog world to enter into what seems like a BILLION give-a-ways to win the Silhouette Cutter that you can find HERE and i haven't won one yet... it sucks.. during black friday i am sure i went to at least 25 different blogs... poor me i know! AND i asked for it for christmas but it was way way way to much money... well my honey was sweet enough to let me get it now! It is on sale for $175....... the cheapest its been forever! so if you decide you want one, go to the checkout, and put in a code, i bet you could find different codes from different blogs but the one i used was TATER. and it will put the discount and everything for you.. i am SOOOOOOOO EXCITED to get started using it... from vinyl, to scrapbooking..... to heat transfer for my little guy's onsies! oh i am not going to be bored now!!!!

Brady is so sweet and knew i really really wanted it...... lets hope now i can figure out how to use the thing! haha! it shouldnt be too hard......... so be watching for my (want to be) craftiness to start coming out more often!!

29 weeks & getting ready (showers.ect)

So this weekend i realized i am only 11 weeks away from this little guy entering the world... I have known it was real, but for some reason it felt really REAL this weekend... as i lay there i was making a list in my head of things we needed, didnt need, had, didnt have... and i started getting kinda scared.. i know and realize that if i end up not having something its not the end of the world.... and i could do without.. but what if i dont make a good mom, or don't know why the baby is crying, or can't get him to stop crying... I know, i bet all first time mom's go through this.. but i'm just getting worried that i'm not going to be all that i can be.... But my cousin Emi said something to me one day and it has actually helped alot. She said to put all the WHAT IF'S in the closet and shut the door.. so thats what i'm trying to do.

We went to our family christmas party yesterday at my Aunts. we did the whole dinner, and santa. I got kinda emotional when Santa asked me and Brady what we wanted for christmas and he blurted out "a healthy baby" how cute is that, and it was him that thought of it.. not me. i was thinking a vacation, toys, and ya know.. normal christmas stuff.. i realize now that sometimes people dont get the husbands enough credit. they tell me it wont be real to him until he hold the little guy.. but all in all he is very involved and i know that he is just as excited (and probably scared) as i am..... that little comment made my whole season! My Brady has been wonderful through this all! he has helped out a lot, and made me comfortable and stable throughout the whole thing! he hasn't missed one dr. appointment, and compliments me on a daily basis.

but thinking about how close it is coming..... i am getting ready to have my baby shower, and didnt want to leave anyone out that was wanting to come.. my mind is kinda scattered so i thought i'd ask on here if you want to come if i can get your address :) thanks, and i know its not the most formal way to ask!

i hope everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS this week!!!! i can't wait to see what everyone gets.. i hope santa visits each of you!

ok so i have been falling really behind in the picture world. we haven't been taking pictures of my belly... so i'm sorry for that! but below is our christmas pictures we took. I was 25 weeks.............. to see the pictures bigger click on them
this picture isn't the best, but i had promised a friend (TawnA) that i would post a belly pic.. and well i thought i had some on my camera.. its dead, and i can't find the charger... so this isn't the best picture but i took it with my computer...... but i guess you can see the belly (dont mind the messy house.. its christmas season) and this picture i actually took THIS morning so i'm 27 and a 1/2 weeks.... i am going to the dr. for glucose tests... wish me luck!

pregnancy ups and downs

Ok, so i am 27 weeks preg. today and i feel like i haven't been keeping track of everything that has been happening... so if you dont want to keep reading about my preg. stop here. this is kinda for me so i can remember things!

so my pregnancy hasn't been bad.. but there has been a few road bumps!

1st things first, i feel big.. brady says my belly doesnt look different than it did 2 or 3 weeks ago... but it is definately bigger to me. its more firm, and i notice it gets in the way now.... i sometimes forgot its there when i reach down to get something, or reach over the table or something and BAM i run into my belly. The other day me and my mom were walking around a store shopping and i usually am ok to walk right next to her... well i kept hitting my stomach on her purse.. silly me. i guess i need to watch out for those types of things! :)

my back aches..... to this day i haven't had many problems.. but lately the sciatica pain has started coming during the night and well i'm not looking forward to what its going to be like in a few months.

Heartburn.. well i have only had it once.. on thanksgiving night and i am pretty sure i ate WAY to much turkey!!! haha.. so i'm knocking on wood, and hoping that it stays away. :) i take two tums with my prenatal everynight just to PREVENT it during the night... so whether i'd get it or not, i wouldnt know.. i'm not willing to find out.

my hair is falling out, and i hate it! i heard that you are supposed to get beautiful hair when your preg.... well if thats the case my hair sucks cause its all falling out! haha...its not really growing either. crap!

i wake up at least once a night to pee... is that normal? i guess it could be worse.. but still! i hate having to get out of a warm bed to go pee. totally not cool. i have even tried to not drink liquids after a certain point at night to see if that will help and well.... it doesnt....

i feel like i lose sleep... from all the back aches, to peeing, to just being exhausted.... i was way tired in the first trimester and the second has been great until like the last 2 weeks.... i sleep in longer, am late to work... and i hate it.. any suggestions?

people say the darnest things! i will have to take a picture of my belly today and post it, but ok so i say i feel big.. but i'm probably not big enough people should have started saying stuff right? well wrong... they dont care how big you are, or aren't.. some people just DONT HAVE A FILTER! i was walking by a CNA at my work the other day and she's like, wow you sure got that pregnancy waddle.... ok so maybe its not so bad, but i dont know if she has kids or not... and if she does she should know not to say ANYTHING to a pregnant lady! haha.... i dont know if i was just having a bad day or what but it hit a nerve........ we aren't even friends.. it'd be different if we were close.. but saying something like that when you hardly know the person.... pshhh

but from all the little things that make me bad talk preg.. like mine has even been bad.. it hasn't so i shouldn't talk at all.... but from all those little things.. there are great things as well!!!

i feel him kick ALOT! and when he does i am reassured that he is in there and he's ok... he talks to me and i talk to him and there is communication......

I everytime i go to the dr. they say i am measuring just perfect, and i am happy for that....

me and brady can't decide on a name... nothing has stuck... its a hard thing because its such a big deal! we have thrown some out there, but we aren't sure... its funny how people are. we like some names and what to share, and you should hear the remarks we get back...... i'm like HELLO people, if i like it enough i'm going to name him that anyways despite what you say. :) haha but we are trying to eliminate the possiblities of him getting made fun of, having the same name as everyone else, and not being able to play the rhyming game with the name... so we'll see!

oh the joys of pregnancy... i might complain a little but in all reality i am SOOOO HAPPY, and nothing could take the joy feeling away from me. he is such a special little guy already and i am so excited that i only have 3 MORE MONTHS! i can't believe it.... sometimes i think i'm ready, other days i dont.....

we love you little guy! :) stay cozy in there until your ready!

We all get to work, work for a few hours.... go to lunch (usually chilis to show off our costumes), go back to work, work for a few more hours and then the fun begins!!!

We have an annual TRICK OR TREAT event where all the residents get dressed up, sit outside their rooms and hand out candy! talk about a lot of candy in one place... freak! and all the employees, friends and past co-workers bring the little ones in to join the fun!!! i love it! we have people from the community call every year and ask if we are still doing it! and of course it just gets bigger and bigger every year.... so next year bring your little ones!!!! its a LOT of fun

I love that about Logan Nursing..... can't wait to show off my little guy next year in his costume.. as you can see he's joining the fun this year... my belly sure was a poking out! haha

girls night out.... a while ago!

ok... so this is long over due... since this girls night was what... a month ago or so? maybe not that long ago, anyways..

When i married brady i didnt just get a family, but i got friends too! These girls are fun, and were nice enough to invite me to their girls night out....... as far as i can tell they get together alot and take turns driving to salt lake, or logan so they can get together... it was way fun, we first went to Texas Roadhouse.. i love that place.. i couldn't believe how many tables of just girls there were.. i guess it was everyone's night for a girls night. then after that we walked around wal-mart, got treats, played dress up, and headed back to Nicole's house. We played QUELF if you have never played it you need to! it was so darn funny... i didnt have to do alot of the funny things, but some of the girls did and i just laughed :)

I love girls nights.. i have had a few more with different groups of friends... what is better than friends? and a night away from your husband's once in a while.... ;)

Brady is going to have a new fishing partner.......

We are having a  BOY!!!!! I am so excited and i can't even tell you how these last few days have been for me!!!! yesterday was INCREDIBLE.... you'd think ok we found out.. cool.. now what? thats not it! i have like a perma-grin, and i can't wait until i get to talk to someone about it!!! 

Our ultra sound went VERY good... I was nervous when i walked in there that something would be wrong.. but it wasn't he was PERFECT.... we got to see his brain, and his little heart.. and the chambers and that it was beating.. we got to see his kidneys, and other parts of his body that were working just great! 

Though, it was a  good thing he acted the way he did because he had his hands down (there) the UNTIRE time!! i kept saying.. welp, i know its a boy! haha!! it was cute, we got some 3-d pictures, and they put the whole ultrasound on a slide show for us!!! 

it was fun not to see what it was, so they had us look away and the ultrasound tech said he still wouldnt show what he was.. so she had to jiggle my stomach a lot and finally he spread his legs so we could see... It was funny cause we watched the video again when we got home (we didn't get to see that part in the room cause we didnt wanna know) and the little guy actually Took his hands off from down there, showed us what he was and then did a clear as day THUMBS UP!  what a cute little guy. i couldnt be more excited!!!! i'm half way! i'll try and get some pics on here in the next few days......

The anticipation from 12 (when we got done at the dr.) and 4:30 when we went to dinner with our parents was the worst! i kept asking brady if we could just open it.. we didnt though!!! it was fun to sit down with our parents and have them guess, and then we opened it up!! :) it was a great little suprise!

Sunday Afternoon..... & what do U think i'm having?

So this Sunday, our friends Jordan & Eric called and wanted to know if we would like to go up and see the Salmon Run up past porcupine... and it was a great day, a sunday afternoon and so we said. Yes, of course! We didnt get to see as many salmon as we could have if we would have went earlier this month, or last month.... but it was still fun (i forgot to take pictures of the fish... sorry) but it was cool to see so many! it was a great sunday outting for sure! We took our dog up there as well and she loved it!!! i wish i could have gotten a picture of her, she ran right next to the riverbank up and down trying to chase the fish... she's cute!
This is me and brady up the river from porcupine dam.... (he's ALWAYS pulling a face)
 This is us again.. i MADE him smile... This one will count for my 19 week picture :)
 me and jordan! love her
 what we hiked through
brady fishing, just for fun to see if the salmon would bite

We get to find out WEDNESDAY what we are having! i can hardly even wait..... its killing me! haha! but i want to know what you guys think.. some of you have seen me, some have not? but i honestly dont have a feeling one way or another??????

18 Weeks.. the Dreaded picture

Ok! this is me at 18 weeks. I woke up, hadn't ate anything, and hadn't gotten ready. This is the first picture i had taken of my belly... and i guess it turned out ok...... I am 19 weeks 2 days now.. so i think i've grown a little.. but  you guys might not.. i'll try and take more pictures.. maybe every 2 weeks..... or if i remember every week.... i am not comfortable posing for a picture of my belly.. so maybe i'll just post some i've taken during the week? haha jk, i know in the end i'll want these pictures

Baby Flutters & finding out

BABY FLUTTERS: Ok, so for the last few weeks i have thought i was crazy.... I knew i felt the baby, but everyone thought it was too early and as brady put it "your high" i know nice of him right? actually it just came down to the fact that he didnt really want to be the last one to feel the baby.... which i guess out of me and him its fate he'll be last... but i understand he just wants to be a part of it as well.

I was sitting there a few weeks ago the 9th to be exact... and i thought i felt something. then after he said it was probably too early, and a couple other people did too i just pushed it to the side as gas.... well i felt it again the last two days.... SIGNIFICANTLY the baby not gas.... so now that i had felt it bigger this time i know i wasn't crazy then :) what an exciting thing..... {whats your opinion on the matter}

FINDING OUT: as far as finding out what we are having, we get to in 3 LONG weeks... its going to seem like it is never going to come!!! our appointment is on Wed. Oct. 13th in the morning... but me and brady have decided that we want to go to the dr and have him tell us everything he can about the baby EXCEPT for the sex. WE will have him put the pictures and the Gender in an envelope and take it home. At first we were going to see who could go the longest without wanting to know.. but i know i'd lose, so we are going to keep it in the envelope until that night and then go out to dinner, with both sets of parents.. I think that will be so exciting and fun! brady knows i'm a peeker.... so he's already decided he gets to hold onto the envelope until we to dinner. (i didnt think it was fair but i guess its true :) and then I get to OPEN it :) i guess its a good deal....

i'll keep you all updated!

Lake to the Powell

So the title kind of explains itself.. we went to LAKE POWELL!!! i had a blast. We all did! i dont have all the best pictures because Duane (the owner of the houseboat- aka our friends dad) took most of them.. cliff jumping, swimming, ect. cause he wanted to put a cd together.. so i took random ones here and there but that was it....... here are some of the ones i had on my camera..... oh and quick note.. lake powell is ALOT different being preggo than i thought it would be.
1. i couldnt cliff jump- my dr. had told me that i couldn't
2. I had to sit at the back of the ski boat where it was less bumpy.. instead of up in the front in the sun
3. i had to wear ALOT of sunscreen- everyone told me i would get fried being pregnant, so i kept putting sunscreen 30 on and well i came back with a load of NOTHING, i guess its good i'm not miserable though.. so it could be worse
4. the 8 hour dr. and having to make people stop so i could go to the bathroom, or holding it until i almost died was difficult
5. sleeping was kind of different cause i couldnt get comfy and i always ended up falling asleep before most of the people

but all in all i had a ton of fun! and i wish i didnt have to come home yet. we went up a lot of canyons, swam alot, played a lot of card games, ate ALOT and sat in the sun and soked it up!! what a blast..... we're already thinking about going again next year!

oh ya.... our trip was going great until about an hour away from our destination one of the drivers hit a deer... :( it sucked! but we got back on the road and got to antelope point and headed out.......
me and heather hanging out on the top of the houseboat
jackie-heather-me (and brady) cruisin in the ski boat
all the girls tanning away :)
this is where colby (brady's friend and my friends' husband) tried slide off the slide on top of me as i was floating around.... well he didnt quite make it... he he
brady's bass
one of the caves we went through
me and my hubby on the boat
brady being brady... hiking all around and then jumpin in
This was a Tree that was just sticking out of the water.... all our friend climbed on it to take a pic and jump off...... as you can see i didnt want to try and climb cause i  couldnt jump anyways...

14 weeks & finally feeling preggo

So i will be fourteen weeks on saturday. CRAZY!  time is just flying by. Well the other day i had my first back ache. (it was so bad i fell to my knees and thought it was dealing with my kidney's) so i haven't been able to sleep. (but the sleep being a pain would probably happen whether this back ache had happened or not).  So i decided since i was going to lake powell in a few weeks i should make sure if it is dealing with my kidney's that i get it taken care of before i go. Well i spent FOREVER in the Dr. office yesterday. They did routine things like the beginning of every appt, but today i felt so OFF.... my blood pressure was high- 140something over 90, i had lost a pound, and i needed to do a urine sample.. well i went in there and i couldnt pee. that was a FIRST... so they gave me a bottle of water, made me wait and try again... that was kinda embarrassing! haha but they finally got it and took me back into wait for the dr. while we were waiting we got to listen to the heart beat.. its high again but came down a smidge it was 150. When the dr. finally came in we talked he pushed on my back and he told me it had nothing to do with my kidney's. there was no tissue, leukocytes or anything in my urine so i was safe, he also ruled out kidney stones because there was no blood in my urine either... WELL FREAK.. is my body so out of shape, and in such a dramatic change that it is being wimpy? i guess so! i have my regular appt. next tuesday. so we'll see if i feel better by then :)

as far as other pregnancy symptoms and signs if thats what you want to call it.......... do you guys believe in food cravings? i know i didnt. i had heard that it was a myth from forever ago and never believed it.. well you'd be surprised.... people eat weird things and they say, What? your the pregnant one, this should sound good to you.... not really happeneing.. the only thing that is kinda weird that i enjoy eating is spagetteos. i LOVE them! :) i eat them at least every other day! and Milk.. haha.. weird i know! but i guess food cravings is a real thing.... who would have thought!

oh.. and i'm just waiting for my belly to pop out.. nothing yet. so we'll see. it will probably happen when i'm in a swim suit in lake powell.. great... for all of you preggo or, mommy's out there--- when did you start showing?

Oh the Joys of Pregnancy :)

Adding a Member to Team LARSON

No suspense or anything.. WE'RE EXPECTING!!! DUE MARCH 5TH sorry I couldnt keep it in... I just had to hurry and blurt it out! Haha! That is because I have been keeping it a huge secret since June 24 when I found out I was 4 weeks PREGO! Wow.... what a weight off my shoulder that was! Now 3 days shy of 12 weeks and I feel like I have already been Pregnant forever cause I haven't been able to tell anyone and I found out so early!!

More about being Prego..... NO MORNING SICKNESS!!!! I seriously feel bad for all those pregnant women out there that get sick. I have been a little nauseated when I dont eat for like 4 hours, and that sucks, so I can only imagine what it's like to actually throw up. I haven't done that yet, knock on wood! And i'm already 12 weeks, so lets hope I just missed that stage ALL TOGETHER! I do have headaches and I crave Spagetteos! Haha but other than that no heartburn, no nothing..........

I held it in for 8 weeks.. can you believe that? Want to hear the story behind why I held it in for so long? Long Story Short, after a past of 2 miscarriages I felt like I should wait until that period in the pregnancy was over. So i'm sorry for those of you who I haven't told yet... let's just hope i didnt spill the beans to fast this time

June came and I was late, but didn'y say anything. Though Brady noticed anyways. We were laying in bed one night and I rolled over and told him I was thinking about taking a test the next morning. He acted mildy surprised and said really? And got excited. He called his friend Jake and left a message that I had just told him something and he needed to call back asap! As though something was wrong. I hadn't even taken the test yet and he was already bouncing off the walls.. He wanted me to take it that night, but I explained that in the morning it would be so much better because the levels would be up.

I think we secretly both knew what was about to happen. Our lives were going to change forever. The next morning I took the test and forgot to look at it.. it said positive but I didnt know if that was the evaporation line or what, so I called the Dr. office and went for blood work it was only 105 hcg then 2 days later went in again and it was in the 600's so it more than doubled... YAY!! I had never went in for blood work where the number actually doubled.. what a relief! we then made an appointment for 8 weeks (thats what I thought I was), because with my history they wanted to see me early.. WELL when we got the ultra sound done they said we were only 6 weeks! ONLY 6 WEEKS!!!!!! that means that I found out early... the heartbeat was 110 and the baby was only like .5 cm or something crazy small like that.

Our next appointment was our 10 week. We had an abdominal ultrasound done this time and we saw the baby and how much it had grown! It was INCREDIBLE. We didnt get a print out of this ultrasound but we did the first one. We got to hear the heartbeat again and it was up to 154.. So far so good! Now I figured I could tell people!!!!

few exciting dates -
October: when he find out if we are having daddy's little princess, or mommy's little prince

(i have my 6 week ultra sound i'll post later)

For our anniversary we went down south toward strawberry resevoir to stay at Daniel's Summit! the hotel we stayed in was way nice! great view of the mountains. We sure do love the outdoors!!!! we had fun swimming, fishing, and i had fun sleeping :) it was a good way to get my rest! haha!

Brady & I have been married for a year on the 8th!! HOLY CRAP! i don't know what else to say except wow... that went fast! everyone always says that the first year is the hardest........ so if so i think we're golden! :) i know that he loves me, and i love him.... in the world that seems to be the only thing that matters! this is a picture from our honey moon last year... it all seems like it  happened yesterday!

I feel like we have accomplished and went through a lot of things in our first year that most newlyweds don't usually go through........ yet we both grew together as well as in our own direction and we still make time to be together.

Fishing & Fathers day

So lately Brady has been going fishing any time he can, he's been with our neighbor Nick, my cousin Paul, and my Dad... along with his other friends here and there. I think brady likes it, and so do i usually! we had a great time out with my dad a couple sunday's ago.. even though brady was the only one catching!



Father's day was really great this year, we went out to my aunt & uncle's house for some good chicken/salmon! YUM YUM. unfortunately we didnt make it down to brady's parents, even though we really would have loved it! it just didnt work for us this time.....Even though we have a great dad, we can't forget that this is the first father's day with out our grandpa..  i miss him dearly, and anytime i ever listen to "Grandpa, tell me bout the good ol' days" it just makes me happy & sad all in one!
Me and dad! 
Dad (Daisy's dad that is) and me! :)
& The Whole Gang

Thursday, June 10, 2010


So it has been a way busy and fun time for us! and i feel like i should have posted these craft things forever ago! but i have been busy working on stuff (multiple things still in the process) but i have had these things done for WEEKS but i have just not posted them!! and some of these projects are my "saving me from being alone while brady is at work until 11 pm" projects! as you see i try and keep myself busy when i'm alone.. so if anyone ever wants to have a craft night i have plenty more ideas i want to turn into projects! :)
These balls are decorative balls that i made for a bowl in my entry way... I just learned how to dye the hemp different colors so i will SOON be adding color to it as well! as well as the wreath and the flowers.. this is all for my entry way!
I had three peices of wood and they went from ugly to beautiful (want to see the tutorial and idea where i got it from.... click here) ps i LOVE this blog!

and this is what the final product turned out to be.. PERFECT for my living room

(it looks better in person!!)

and i have had PLENTY of baby SHOWERS! so this is some of the stuff i've been working on!! (plus i have a few more that i can't actually post the pictures yet because it would ruin their shower) so i'll post them later!
The pink stuff is what i gave Alisa for her baby shower ( i had something else with it but i forgot to take a pic )

the stars &; moons and the bow were for Katie-(in the middle) because she doesnt know what she's having and she's moving before she finds out!!! so the bow could be used as a bow tie for a baby boy, or add a clip and it could be a cute hair bow for a girl
i didnt get a good pic of it unrolled... DARN- (this is the changing pad....)

BUT i also did stars and moons for my boss Melissa (she's having a little boy- i added a little "E" because the baby's name is going to be EASTON, and i changed the changing pad to have the stars and moons on it instead of the yellow, and i used blue ribbon instead of white...  so i'm sorry if those of you who got gifts are upset that i gave other people the same thing! but i thought the burp, changing pad, bib idea was a cute combo!!! maybe i should start thinking of different combos though

and all these cute bows & flowers are only the BEGINNING of what i'm making.... i just thought i'd show off what i have so far!! they will be fun to add to gifts for little girls...they will be cute on clips or on headbands!
. Now i just gotta figure out something to add to little boys gifts...... maybe bow ties and some cute suspenders :)

the 4th of july is coming up!!! and look what i've started to make
